Prep Time: 30 minutes + chill time Cook Time: 40 minutes Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

  1. In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook and crumble sausage until no longer pink roughly 5-7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove your delicious cooked sausage from the pan and discard drippings.

  2. In same pan – fewer dishes to have to wash - heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté potatoes for about 8 – 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from heat and stir in seasonings, sausage, chiles for some extra spice, and ½ cup cheese.

  3. Place ½ cup of filling onto each authentic Casa Mendosa™ tortilla and roll them up! Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, seam side down. Top the enchiladas with mucho sauce, cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

  4. Now it’s time to get cooking. Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove enchiladas from the refrigerator while the oven heats. Bake, covered, 30 minutes and then top with remaining cheese. 

  5. Bake, uncovered, for about 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned and heated through. Serve with your choice of toppings and enjoy!
